What everyone seems to be forgetting about are the ginormous deductibles on these plans. $12,700.00Read More on a silver plan for myself and my wife when we earn $50K per year combined? And the Bronze plan having and even higher deductible??? So much for affordable health care. This sounds more like silver catastrophic coverage. The insurance execs are gonna get huge bonuses this year thanks to the American public The official government health care cost calculator is located at. http://kff.org/interactive/subsidy-calculator/ So much for affordable health care....

Kevin, you forgot that the P&G logo is a sign from the devil, that fluoride is a commie plot,Read More must I go on? You are a paranoid fool who fears a sugar high from the cookies sold by those pre pubescent teases who must be demonized to negate your nasty thoughts. And, Michael, you are a hate spewing racist idiot.

Aw, C'mon Joe and Lynn, can't we all get along? Your president is merely continuing the Bush neo-conRead More policies. In both 2008 and 2012 the top 20 contributors to Obama, McCain and Romney were ALL involved in Wall Street banks, bond attorney law firms, and multinational corporations that keep sending our jobs to Asia. Instead of resorting to name calling, do a little more fact checking with primary sources like not only the one I hyperlinked but also the Federal Elections Commission website. So, while you disparage our person you also concede the truth of our information by failing to refute it. This is probably another hate spewing anecdote but children need their Mothers and Fathers and not the kind of secularism and "independence" which denies the importance of normal families and appropriate relationships. All things considered in this great national issue, it's probably better to bake your own cookies until further notice.

Providing unequal benefits to employees breaks from the concept of "equal pay for equalRead More work". Pay employees for their work & have them purchase healthcare as they see fit.

Still can't believe it took Lakewood this long - effective in 2014 - to pass and provide what is soRead More obvious = fair and equal treatment/benefits for all its employees. Maybe the city isn't as progressive as it pretends to be?
michael bastian October 15, 2013 at 12:19 pm
Once we know the solution, it's obvious. To be considered "progressive" actions areRead More considered to be ahead of a social curve and therefore not main stream. I have found Lakewood to be consistent in that manner, without being strident. For a humourous take on how obvious it is even today fo understand what is obvious check out Ask a Slave. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=n33iPnDRqPU#t=3

I'm not thinking it was brought by the tea-party. He is saying that both government and privatizedRead More health care sites are frustrating, but the least of the 2 is government care. Signing up for ACA was easier in his opinion.
Tate Davidson October 14, 2013 at 12:31 pm
Yes … there i a twist, by golly! Health insurance companies (in the "old" signupRead More method), are trying to NOT give you affordable insurance if you come up as at risk. Great idea to compare the 2 methods.
Cory Roberts October 15, 2013 at 10:39 am
So it makes something a nightmare when it's easier than what's currently out there? Ok, whatever youRead More say.

Brandon Scullion November 25, 2013 at 08:29 am
Great point for all of those who brought up the fact that this should never have been allowed toRead More fall into such disrepair. I'm pretty sure that a homeowner could never have gotten away with such things. It truly is a shame. Joe S. - Funny
